Owner description: Splashdown Waterpark is a great day out for family and friends. There’s something for everyone – from big kids to little ones – with some of the UK’s most exciting waterflumes.For the thrill-seekers, brave the Screamer with its sheer vertical drop. Plunge into darkness on the Black Thunder. And hold on to your pants as you shoot down the Spacebowl like a human pinball. Or if that sounds a bit like hard work, just go with the flow on the Mississippi Drifter.There’s the fabulous Little Buccaneers SplashZone with a starter flume, water play area and Buccaneer Bay, our toddler swimming pool. And, on a hot summer’s day, Buccaneer Beach is the perfect spot for a splash with the little ones. There’s even somewhere to play for little landlubbers.We’re open all year with indoor rides in the winter. In the spring, we take the slide outside where the Mississippi pours into the Grand Canyon. And, in May, bring on the awesome Screamer Tower – it’s fluming good fun! What are you waiting for?

“Dirty & cold”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Went to splashdown in Poole and it was the worse place i'd been to. When i was there it was ran by kids who did not care. At reception the guy there was to busy speaking to his mate to speak to us. The changing rooms were very dirty along with the toilets. Also the place was cold and the life guards were just busy talking to their friends and not keeping an eye on what was going in the pool. We only stayed a short time and when we left we complained at reception but once again they did not care and just carried talking to each other.

“good day but some hazards”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I had a great day but the space bowl is quite a hazard. I winded myself by goinf in on my back, also my friend was nearly drowned after going down the mississippi drifter and getting stuck under somebodys ring. The prices are quite high too.

“Cost lots”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very expensive very tame, good for kids but even they were bored after an hour, probably much better when the outside rides are open

“Smaller than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Remember going there when on holiday as a kid. Usual disappointment of adult experience of childhood memory. Remember it as a much bigger and better place as a kid, but actually quite limited as an adult.

“Always excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place provides hours of fun at a good price. It is well staffed and the life guards are very attentive. The children and young adults love it and even oldies like me seems to enjoy it too. There is a cafe area for parents to sit and wait in the warmth and because you can see the area where all the rides come out you can keep an eye on your young people.

Excellent value, excellent fun and good attention to safety.
